Pros: Better than the oft-wimpy 3A chargers because you get 2A out of *each port* - great for today's high-capacity smartphones and high-drain apps like Waze
Cons: A little bulbous in terms of size and how far it sticks out of the DC port
Pros: Has worked w/ every phone I've plugged in to it. Droid Incredbile, HTC Trophy, Lumia 822, Lumia 928, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5c
Cons: Can't charge DC devices - wish it had that adapter
Pros: Bought this drive as an upgrade to my Dell XPS Studio the day I purchased the PC itself. I got the drive from Dell, installed on day 1, and it's been running for almost a solid 4 years without a single issue. This computer is on 24/7 used by my wife who used Photoshop CS5,6, and now CC. Never had a single issue on either Windows 7 or Windows 8 or the Windows 8.1 preview
Pros: Works great in my Dell Studio XPS system. Software it came with error'd out on me, but was nice that it was there to begin with. The Magician software provides a great overview of the health & performance of the drive as well
Overall Review: Great price on this item when I pounced. Glad I went for the 500gb so I'm safe for another few years
Pros: Compatible with my Dell XPS Studio AMD Phenom x6 system.
Adds on RAMDISK capability w/ 6gb of RAMDISK support.
Overall Review: Great price for this set of memory, and it's highly compatible - haven't had any issues whatsoever since installing in my Dell
Pros: Excellent price, tons of space
Cons: WP8 supposedly supports this SD format, but when I tried to take lots of pictures in succession or take a 1min+ 1080p video, the camera would lock up and the card would wind up corrupted. I'd have to put it in a Windows PC, "repair" the disk, then put it back in the phone.
I tried a (very) old 2gb MicroSD from SanDisk and it worked w/o issue in the same phone.
Overall Review: Not sure if this is a phone/OS thing or a thing w/ this card, to be honest.
Pros: Versatile and worked well, when it worked. I used both SATA and IDE, but mostly IDE with this.
Cons: clunky AC adapter. After a few months I thought that the drives I was using were failing and that's why they were "pinging" against the side of their cases. No matter, I thought. then I just purchased a new SATA drive and put it in the enclosure. Same issue. Borrowed a friend's SATA docking station, no issues w/ the drive. I believe controller board on this thing is very sub-par. Would not recommend it or anything that looks like it (ie Sabrent lookalike)
